I recently came across a Dog Tag Knife that intrigued me. It’s diminutive size was actually one of the attracting features. Simplicity was another. The possibility of good blade steel was a plus. A…Continue

Nice looking knife there, Jan.

Tired of big ornate titanium flippers that cost several Benjamin's and have the edge geometry of a trench shovel?.  A Manly knife review.

There is that offcourse, also...no lock wear, no off center blade, they're generally lighter than folders of the same size, they're usually cheaper and with a slim sheath they'll carry almost as conveniently in the pocket as a sizeable folder.

A fixed blade, won't get blade play or a broken spring. I think a fixed blade can hold up to more hard use than a folder.

The nice thing about non folding knives is often also the handle/blade ratio. In a folding knife there are a lot of technical limitations because there has to be a pivot and the knife has to fit into the handle.

In a non folding knife there's no such thing. A 3" blade with a 3" handle is no problem. Or a 4"/4" blade handle knife.

Try doing that in a folding knife....you'll NEVER get as much blade as a handle unless you cheat like this:

And I'd hardly call that a proper folding knife....on that needs a sheath so you don't cut yourself. That's like a folding knife without the advantages of a folding knife while keeping the disadvantage of being "pre-broken".

I could not agree more. A small fixed blade can do a lot more jobs than it's given credit for. Some Tactical folders have become very large and blunt and are a bit clumsy to use. Most of my fixed blade user are small to medium. I don't own any large fixed blades.

Personally I love smaller fixed blades. I make MANY more small ones than large fixed blades.

Currently I really love carrying one of my own "Little Undertakers" in stainless steel. t feels so solid yet the grind is so thing it could probably slice anything it needed. I feel fixed blades in pocket sizes are very underrated while folding knives (especially "hard use" folding knives are a little overrated.

I was thinking about a bunch of knives that are not spoken about much. I'm not sure if this is the right group to talk about them, I'll just judge the response, because I know a lot of ya'll own some of these. The group is "Small Fixed  blades". This is a bunch of knives that I actively use and collect. I am sure a lot of ya'll own some and don't realize they are a little different from your full size fixed blade. Please tell me what ya'll think.
